Dave Feldman, known as Dave Keto around the internet, is one of our favorite researchers today. Like our host, Geoff, he’s actually a computer engineer by training. With a systems engineering approach to the human body, Dave has one of the most interesting and nuanced ideas around metabolism, lipidology, and cholesterol.

With years of rigorous n=1 self-experiments around low-carb and ketogenic diets, Dave is helping drive a new conversation around cholesterol and challenging the traditional lipid hypothesis.

In this episode, you'll discover:

  • What a ketogenic diet “hyper-responder” is
  • The role of cholesterol in the body and how risky high cholesterol really is in context of other biomarkers
  • The good and bad of modern scientific research culture, and how Dave's experiments are a strong model to strive for
